Residents of Upwell came together for a sun-baked weekend of music, dance and even a visit from BBC Radio Norfolk’s Treasure Quest.

The event started on Saturday with Party in the Park, which saw music from today back to the 1960s thanks to live performances by Amy, Saga Louts, NLE and Something Else.

There was also a BBQ, bar, Minnie Mouse bouncy castle and slide and candy floss.

Sunday saw BBC Radio Norfolk’s treasure quest arrive in the morning with Julie Reinger looking for her second clue of the day in the afternoon tea tent.

Later there were two Emneth White tigers karate demonstrations, a dance display by Streetwise Upwell and a falconry display by Fenland Falconry.
